Lecturer Sonja Crane conducts a study day
An Introduction to Managing Pain and Symptoms in Palliative and End of Life Care

9:30am - Wednesday 13th June 2018, at Compton Care Learning and Development Centre

Aim:

This study day enables healthcare assistants and other non-qualified allied health and social care professionals to enhance their knowledge around holistic symptom management for palliative and end of life care patients.

You will gain an overview of the latest evidence base increasing your understanding of the assessment and management of a range of symptoms such as pain, nausea and vomiting, breathlessness and constipation. You will also gain knowledge around proactive rather than reactive care for patients in the last days of life.

Communication is important in all health care settings, but is critical for patients with advanced life-threatening illness. Health professionals often lack the communication skills or confidence required to work with this patient group in situations that can involve dealing with challenging
emotions and complex clinical situations.

This one day study day will provide you with an overview of the latest evidence base and equip you with the necessary knowledge to support effective communication for patients and their families facing the challenges associated with palliative and end of life care. You will observe and reflect upon a simulated demonstration of a difficult conversation based on frequently encountered challenges identified by the group. Your knowledge and skills will be enhanced, improving your confidence in end of life care discussions.

Target audience:

Suitable for healthcare assistants and other non-qualified staff involved in caring for those patients with a life limiting illness.

Cost:

£40.00 (incl. all refreshments and buffet lunch)

Venue:

Compton Care Learning and Development Centre
The Cedars
